Very cozy. Service not great today. Spinach salad was very good. Meatloaf sandwich was average. Choose to dine by fireplace on cold winters day.

They have an extensive menu that is a bit overwhelming but you will be sure to find something to meet your needs. The atmosphere is charming. Good food. Have not tried eating on the deck in the summer. Would recommend you try this place.
